The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that they are extending the partially hydrogenated oil (PHO) prohibition compliance date for finished products produced prior to the June 18, 2018 halt date. The January 1, 2020 extension was granted as a transition timeframe so finished products may make their way through distribution. In the Constituent Update the FDA is also denying a food additive petition from the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) requesting certain limited uses of PHO ingredients. For those particular products impacted by the denied petition, the FDA is extending the manufacturing compliance date or halt date until June 18, 2019.  A transition timeframe of January 1, 2021 has been established for these particular products impacted by the petition denial to work their way through distribution. 

Certain limited petitioned uses of PHOs include use as pan release agents for baked goods, use as processing aids, and use as carriers for color additives and flavorings. It should be noted that the manufacturing compliance date prohibiting all other uses of PHOs (non-petitioned uses) has not been extended. The majority of products shall not be produced with PHOs effective June 18, 2018.
